What’s the Difference between 

Divisions I, II and II? 


Division I 

Division I member institutions have to sponsor at least seven sports for men and seven for women (or six for men and eight for women) with two team sports for each gender. Each playing season has to be represented by each gender, as well. There are contest and participant minimums for each sport, as well as scheduling criteria. For sports other than football and basketball, Division I schools must play 100% of the minimum number of contests against Division I opponents – anything over the minimum number of games has to be 50% Division I. Men’s and women’s basketball teams have to play all but two games 

against Division I teams, for men, they must play 1/3 of all their contests in the home arena. Schools that have football are classified as Division I-A or I-AA. Division I-A football schools are usually fairly elaborate programs. Division I-A teams have to meet minimum attendance requirements: 

• 17,000 people in attendance per home game 

• 20,000 average of all football games in the last four years, or 

• 30,000 permanent seats in their stadium and average 17,000 per home game, or 

• 20,000 average of all football games in the last four years, or 

• Be in a member conference in which at least six conference members sponsor football or 

more than half of football schools meet attendance criterion. 

 

Division I-AA teams do not need to meet minimum attendance requirements. Division I schools must meet minimum financial aid awards for their athletic program, and there are maximum financial aid awards for each sport that a Division I school cannot exceed. 

 

Division II 

Division II institutions have to sponsor at least four sports for men and four for women, with two team sports for each gender, and playing season represented by each gender. There are contest and participant minimums for each sport, as well as scheduling criteria – football and men’s and women’s basketball teams must play at least 50% of their games against Division II or Division I-A or Division I-AA opponents. For sports other than football or basketball there are no scheduling requirements. There are no attendance requirements for football, or arena game requirements for basketball. There are maximum financial aid awards for each sport that a Division II school must not exceed. Division II teams usually feature a number of local or in-state student athletes. Many Division II student-athletes pay for school through a combination of scholarship money, grants, student loans and employment earnings. Division II athletic programs are financed in the institution’s budget like other academic departments on campus. 

Traditional rivalries with regional institutions dominate schedules of many Division II athletic programs. 

 

Division III 

Division III institutions have to sponsor at least five sports for men and five for women, with two team sports for each gender. There are few contest and participant minimums for each sport. Division III athletics features student-athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletic ability and athletic departments are staffed and funded like any other department in the university. Division III athletic 

departments place special importance on the impact of athletics on the participants rather than on the 

spectators. The student-athlete’s experience is of paramount concern. Division III athletics encourages 

participation by maximizing the number and variety of athletic opportunities available to students, placing 

primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition.
